  1. I feel that the Asia Series is a model that should be followed for more international baseball events. A four team long weekend of baseball would probably suit more national teams, and especially MLB clubs who don’t want to risk their players to longer tournaments. Hopefully this idea will catch on in Europe and the Americas.

  2. Eric Bynum says:

    I completely agree. It would be great to have more tournaments like this. Can you imagine a series of these tournaments pitting league champions against one another leading to an eventual world series?

  3. I feel that it is the future direction of international baseball.

    Soccer sets a good standard when it comes to league champions facing each other.

    In Europe I like the idea of the championship Dutch, German, Italian, and British team playing off.

    There are endless possibilities in the Americas!
